Besides the selection and translation of a huge number of poems, letters, short...

LibriVox recording of The Ghost Ship, by John C. Hutcheson. This book intentionally veers in and out of the supernatural, as the title implies. The officers get more and more bewildered as they work out their position, and yet again encounter the same vessel going in an impossible direction. Having warned you of this, I must say that it is a well-written book about life aboard an ocean-going steamer at about the end of the nineteenth century. (Summary by N.H.)
